| | Frequent Loss of GPRS Signal
Please Login to Remove!
My 7100g (Cingular) has developed a nasty habit of losing its GPRS signal and falling back to only GSM status. This happens even when I have lots of signal strength and am in the middle of large cities where there should be plenty of coverage. A friend with a Blackberry will have a GPRS signal even when I don't.
Sometimes turning the wireless on and off will fix this, but most of the time, I have to pull the battery and let it reboot (which takes about 10 minutes) to get the GPRS signal back.
What can I do to fix this?
